12:09 pm
the infrared satellite detected a flash, not a heat trail. so defense officials tell nbc news, a missile is not the cause. a russian news agency says one black box reveals rooting conversations, then unusual sounds in the cockpit. but no distress signal. the debris field is also yielding clues. the russian news agency says investigators are fining elements not related to the aircraft's structure. isis claims it downed the plane. egypt's president dismisses that. the u.s. is cautious, too, about a terrorist link. >> it's unlikely, but i wouldn't rule it out. >> reporter: investigators are work on the flight recorders. extracting information but still releasing none. the airline metro-jet claims a technical fault couldn't have caused the crash, blaming an external impact. russian officials insist that
